Assistant Principal Amanda Mellard’s Letter to Class of 2019 Seniors:


In order to honor our seniors at the Expectations of Excellence assembly in October, Hermitage High School will distribute cap and gowns during lunches on September 24, 2018.  The senior fee of $60.00 needs to be paid as soon as possible.

I would encourage you to begin looking for the clothes you will wear at graduation and have listed the dress requirements below.


  • White dress
  • White dress shoes. High Heels are not suggested due to the possibility of tripping on the Siegel Center steps.  NO FLIP FLOPS are permitted
  • Dresses should not be longer than the gown
  • Excessive jewelry is not appropriate


  • Dark solid-colored dress trousers. NO JEANS
  • White dress shirt and a dark necktie

Due to the short notice, for this assembly ONLY other dress clothes under your gown are permitted.  Ladies may wear a dress or skirt of any color.  Gentlemen must wear a collared shirt and tie, however, it can be any color.  You may not wear jeans, tennis shoes, or flip flops.  If you have questions regarding the dress requirements, please feel free to see me.  I look forward to working with you this year and wish you all a GREAT senior year!

Hermitage High School


  • The senior must have a cumulative course average of at least 80 when grades and other specified criteria are compiled to determine exam exemption near the close of the fourth nine weeks.
  • The senior must maintain a minimum fourth nine-week average of 80 in the course to be exempted.
  • The senior cannot have been absent from the class more than 10 times during the school year (semester class = not more than 5 times).  Religious holidays and school-related absences (field trips, SODA, documented college visits, athletics, etc.) do not count within those absences.
  • Three unexcused tardies to class equals one absence as related to the exam exemption criteria.  Six unexcused tardies to school immediately removes the senior from the eligibility.  Six unexcused tardies to an individual class eliminates the student from exam exemption eligibility in that class.
  • The senior must attend at least 75% of a class in order to be counted present in that class as related to exam exemption eligibility.
  • Any integrity violation which results in disciplinary action removes the student from eligibility.


All of the early release days are on Friday at 3:15pm

  • November 9, 2018
  • December 7, 2018
  • February 8, 2019
  • March 15, 2019
  • May 10, 2019

Please remember Panther Time will be at the end of the day on senior early release days.
